2:05am
from nbc news, this is "today" with kathie lee gifford and hoda kotb, live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. you're halfway through your workweek, it's wines day wednesday, it is november 14th. so happy you are with us today, a little semi dreary, but we are gonna -- >> yeah. >> we're going have our way with that. >> we certainly are. okay. we have an issue that we are haring more and more about. we thought we just had an issue yesterday, but apparently it's continuing. >> a minor issue, but it's growing. like a -- >> but on monday. >> i think it was monday, she was supposed to be our lead guest. >> chelsea handler was supposed to be our lead guest. and that means at 10:00, we go
2:06am
on live, that was gonna happen. at 8:30, ring ring, phone rings, chelsea's not feeling good. >> sick all night we were told. >> sick all night. >> we decided it would be -- she decided it would be a good idea to confess on another national show. >> because even at the time, we said now it would be interesting to see if she shows up at jimmy fallon. >> let's watch. 'cause she did. let's remember this. >> i wasn't sick. >> so you -- >> no, no i wasn't drunk or anything. i literally walked into a shower door this morning, i hit my eye and so everything's puffy. it was just like i couldn't go with kathie lee gifford and hoda kotaba, whatever her name is. >> so then we were worried about the eye because that's a problem if you get hit in the eye. she looked darn good. >> she looked good. she might have great makeup artists. also went that night -- >> to the glamour awards. you can do that with an eye problem. then anyway -- >> she looked darn good, i have to give it to her. >> looked great. in the "new york post," we opened up today to page 6, there is an article in here about chelsea handler again and here
2:07am
it says -- let's see what happened, first it was her eye. what does it say here? explain -- her publicist explained that she had food poisoning. okay. but she rebounded quick enough to snuggle with her boyfriend. that's the rest of the article. >> happy they are back together they had broken up. remember what i said to you monday, bet it is something to do with andre belaz, if that is how you pronounce the last name. >> we still don't know. perez hilton decided to get in on the game, i don't know if we can show it, we have to clear it and pay money and things. perez.com called this feud either a drunken celebrity feud, a boozy feud. >> i don't think it rivals donald trump and rosie o'donnell's feud. who am i? >> the vodka chelsea and the vino -- >> >> nothing to do with alcohol. none of this -- here is the thing. we have the alcohol on the show because of chelsea handler, do you remember that? a long history with chelsea and we are fond of her, don't get us
2:08am
wrong. we did not go looking for this feud. when i first started the show, 4 1/2 years ago, out in on the plaza before we got kicked off for rowdiness. >> here is perez. >> what does it say? >> i would like to toast chelsea -- what? >> new drunken celebrity feud. that's hysterical. >> anyway, she had just come out with her book, "hello, vodka, it's me, chelsea." our producer prepared cocktails for her, just trying to be friendly. yes. >> and so it came and went, the segment came and went, she went boyee bye, we had a nice time. she sold a lot of books, a of gazillion books. and i think it was brooke shields who came on recently after that and said, right after that, where's my drink? . and it just took off, okay? we have nothing to do with it. >> we heard a rumor, by the way, chelsea did apologize on a show that she apparently has.
2:09am
she has a show? >> i heard a rumor she has a show and she was sorry. we looked for it online and they don't update their show online because we couldn't find it. anyway -- >> the feud continues. >> we will find out if it is true. >> we are all about keeping the peace here, we want chelsea to come back any time she likes. we hope her black eye and her food poisoning cleared up. we hope she is happy with her boyfriend. we just want everybody to be happy. we just want to know if it's something that we did. hoda just -- hoda's on a tirade. >> no, i'm not. >> i'm fine. you know me, i'm so much nicer. but hoda? hoda wants blood. >> stop. >> so, hoda wants blood, we will get some blood. >> we have a little surprise for you, one direction was on the plaza yesterday. in fact, filled the plaza, end to end. it was unbelievable. well, we kind of got gypped yesterday, we didn't get a song from one direction, we are making up for it today, they are going to sing a song on our air they taped yesterday called "let me kiss you." it will be on later on the show. the plaza was packed, all the children are gone and the christmas tree is here. ♪ it's christmastime
2:10am
>> who sings that? the tree is here, an 80-foot norway spruce, made its way from new jersey to our plaza. it weighs ten tons, 50 feet in diameter. this is the thing they string with a gazillion lights. and i think they are doing the tree lighting -- >> early this year. 27th -- >> 28th. >> al roker and savannah guthrie will be hosting that. a big deal, the official start to the tourist season. all the tourists that come and every than works here runs for their life. but it is going to be beautiful. >> takes a minute for it to settle. always looks strange when it is first getting set up. then they do their pruning and snipping and it's going to look really good. so some target employees upset -- >> i understand this, hoda, i do. >> something you guys know
2:11am
called black friday, open up the store for sales and stuff. target decided they wanted to do it early on thanksgiving day, starting at 7 p.m. that means you wrap up your meal early and -- >> 9 p.m. >> 9 p.m., i'm sorry. the workers have to go in and start working and the people who are looking for sales have to quickly eat and get online. >> almost 200,000 people, target employees signed an online petition. walmart, toys r us, k-mart and sears are opening their doors at 8:00 p.m. thursday, two to four hours before they kicked things off last year. >> we decided to do a poll at today.com if you guys think it is a good idea to do it on thursday or friday. 60% on our today.com poll says friday should be the start. >> at 7 a.m. >> instead of people having to wreck their thanksgiving meal. >> here is the thing, you know how you lose a civilization, hoda woman, not to get so heavy about it, but it is not overnight. it is one choice at a time. you all of a sudden decided to is more important to make money or sell something than to be a family and be together. and each time we do it, we
2:12am
wonder why we feel like a stranger in our own country. because we used to celebrate. we used to actually take a day to be greatful for what we had as opposed to having to go out and get more stuff. >> right. that within three days nobody's gonna care about. i know the economy is tough and i know that the retailers need the sales and all of that but when we lose perspective about what really matters in this world, we have lost everything, i think. >> right. so let's shop on friday. >> i think so. >> i think you're right. i think so, too. >> unless you don't have a family to celebrate with. but people -- i don't know, are these stores going to pay employees more to work on a holiday? >> i don't know if that is the case. >> a lot of people are out of work, you need the job. it is unfortunate. i really do. >> we are going to talk about a wednesday -- is it wednesday? it is wednesday. >> winesday wednesday. >> talk about a trend. >> this has been around forever though. >> this is a trend and it is peanut butter and pickles.
2:13am
it is national pickle day, in case you didn't know. according to the "new york times," a old favorite it has emerged again. i guess it is the tartness and the tanginess of the pickle coupled with the peanut. >> any given morning, you and i can be found with our peanut butter. every morning we have that guy, that natural stuff that we eat. >> yeah. >> but not gonna do it with the pickles. >> say it a grown up version of pbj because the salty makes it more delicious. >> go for it, hoda. >> i think it's pretty good. >> really? >> uh-huh. i like sweet. i like that try it? make you sick. >> thank you very much. but there is a simply naked wines survey which i will partake in. almost all female wine drinkers apparently prefer to enjoy a glass on saturdays at a restaurant. >> what? >> why? more than half of wine drinkers consider themselves confident. that's hoda woman. about 20% of wine drinkers have skinny dipped. i'm surprised it is not more, depending on how much wine they have had. 25% are bound to spontaneously
2:14am
dance. >> i have a great one coming up for tomorrow. ihoda, you're going to love it. >> drinking simply naked undressed red wine today. from simplynakedwines.com. for more info, go to -- >> go to simply naked wines? >> yeah. if it only told me, i'd tell you. >> we are thrilled, there was a chance yesterday that you and i could have looked really, really stupid, not on our own show but someone else's. >> what else. >> we went on who wants to be a millionaire with meredith vieira, an episode taped and air -- >> in may, in the spring, at the end of her taping schedule. >> playing for a charity it is scary, when you get started, it is going to be like this is one of those exposing your lack of knowledge. i was a little nervous. >> children's miracle hospital networks or -- yeah, the other way around. children's miracle network hospitals. >> anyway -- >> incredible organization. meredith is such fun. she is a doll. she really is.
2:15am
it is interesting, you hear about these organizations that just get huge and they do such incredible work but when you think about it started out with marie osmond and john schneider, two people who came together and started it and now it's millions and millions and millions of dollars raised so that children can go to these hospitals free of charge. it's just miraculous. >> great, great charity. >> god bless them. it was great to see. you'll have to wait until may. but it's worth it. >> i was proud of my hody. best known for delivering punch lines but in his latest film, chris tucker takes a dramatic turn. >> talk about the movie "silver linings" right after this.
